Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
Day 2 begins...A quick breakfast at the deli on the boardwalk and then we took the ferry over to Disney Hollywood Studios. Our plan was to spend a few hours here and then head to Epcot and the International Food Festival. Another full day ahead!

The Disney Hollywood Studios was less crowded than Magic Kingdom and the day more pleasant for being outdoors. This park was a lot of fun! We attended a special effects show with an Indiana Jones theme, did a backlot tour, and learned the history of the park. The backlot tour demonstrated some unique aspects of filming movies and we saw Herbie! The history of the Disney cartoons and evolution to international recognition was fascinating and since we both enjoy history, it was a good educational experience.

During the ferry ride back to the Boardwalk Hotel, we decided to have lunch at the Beaches & Cream Restaurant, which was near the entrance to Epcot, but also had seated dining. The food was tasty, but service very slow. We ordered a burger and chicken sandwich and enjoyed the time together. Our seats were at the bar again, so we were able to watch the staff build

after a long day's work in the movies
the "kitchen sink" ice cream extravagances and deliver them to the ice cream lovers.

Next stop...a short walk to Epcot and the International Food and Wine Festival
